Minding Ps and the Qs-not usual county fair education

Just a month away, the Arkansas Valley Royalty attends a training session on manners and general etiquette. Last night, director Dayla Elliot walked the girls through things they would need to know at a Queen’s luncheon, such as how to sit and how to know which fork to use. The lady-in-waiting, Senior and Junior Princesses along with Fiesta Royalty also learned a little on what to expect for the year ahead. The Arkansas Valley Fair is the oldest continuous running fair in the state.

It kicks off August 14th and runs through the 18th, see our website for a link to the fair with the schedule and more.
